New Orleans Saints hope Lance Moore back in lineup for San Francisco 49ers

1 of 2

Wide receiver Lance Moore missed Saturday’s playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Detroit Lions. It didn’t seem to matter that much.

The Saints set a new post season record for total yards with 626 net — but you can bet if Moore had been involved they likely could have broke 700 yards.

Moore aggravated his hamstring in week 16 after making two catches for 53 yards. He was removed from the contest early, and later missed next weeks win over the Carolina Panthers.

He did not practice leading up to the Saints playoff game against the Lions, and thus was ruled out completely by Friday prior to the game.

But the Saints hope to have him back in the lineup before they face the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round this Saturday.

And Moore himself hopes to get back on the field according to him most recent tweet.

"The grind never stops. Doing everything I can to get myself back on the field. Long, tiring days will pay off. Hope everyone has a good day."

Moore has proven to be a valuable target on third downs, and one Brees consistently looks for inside the red zone.
